“Behold, God is great, and we know him not; the number of his years is unsearchable.” Job 36:26
God is holy. In saying that God is holy, we mean that God is set-apart, distinct, different, and other in every way. God is distinct, different, and other, from everything and everyone else that now exists, that ever has existed, or that ever will exist. In other words, God is set apart unto Himself; He is in a class of His own. For example, God is set apart unto Himself in that He is self-existent. This means that God exists and sustains His existence by His own power. God is truly the only Autonomous Being who has ever or will ever exist. Contrary to the thinking of many people, God did not evolve, appear, develop, or find His birthplace in the heart’s imagination of man. Neither is God a force, or a vague mystical power. He is the Eternal Spirit who never had a beginning and whom will never end (Job 36:26; Isaiah 46:8-11; John 4:24). God is a real Personal Being that has always and will always self-exist. This is why the ancients said of God “Behold, God is great, and we know him not; the number of his years is unsearchable” (Job 26:36).
